sociology of media lectures at the new school (dayan, brown, thompson)

the new school sociology of media lecture series will kick off next week with a lecture by visiting professor daniel dayan (institut d’etudes politiques de paris). the title is ‘the beijing olympics and the global media event’. coming from the co-author of ‘media events’, that sure sounds interesting. the lecture will take place in room d1009, in the 79 fifth avenue building, 06:00pm-? on thursday october 25th.
